Drawing Research Network Postgraduate Event (Oct 2014, Coventry UK)

Date: 23 October 2014
Location: Coventry University, UK
Contact: Deborah Harty d.j.harty@lboro.ac.uk
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 August 2014

The Directors of DRN & TRACEY in collaboration with Coventry University are pleased to announce a Drawing Research Network Postgraduate Event. The event will take place at Coventry University on Thursday 23rd October 2014.

The event aims to provide a space for discussion, dissemination and the exchange of knowledge of research methodologies developed by those either undertaking or recently completed PhD research, where drawing forms a part of the practitioner-research. The organisers would like to invite those engaged in drawing research in this context to submit a proposal for a 20 minute presentation that introduces and analyses the key points of their developed methodology.

The call suggests the following as starting points in the discussion, as possible themes, as prompts and as provocations:

•       What role does drawing play at each stage of the research methodology?
•       How do you reconcile the relationship between drawing practice and theory?
•       Within your methodology: are drawing processes specifically research processes and if so, do drawing outcomes explicitly evidence the research?
•       Is drawing used as an analytic tool and/or research outcome?
•       How does the simultaneity of thinking and iterative action work in the process of drawing research?

Please submit an abstract 300 words max of your presentation to Deborah Harty d.j.harty@lboro.ac.uk by: 15st August 2014

Please include the following information:
Institutional Affiliation (if appropriate)
